We are committed to protecting the privacy of Canadians by ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our health care information in Canada.

We do this through a comprehensive and integrated privacy and security program that protects health data security. You can learn more about our existing policies, protocols and procedures by reading our Privacy and Security Framework. It outlines how we approach data governance and maintain privacy and security protection in all that we do.
